Understanding how to make your manufactured home more energy-efficient in winter is an important first step in reducing your heating bills and overall costs, as well as reducing your energy use and carbon footprint. Here are some tips that can help you reach your energy-efficient goals in the winter season! 

Monitor Thermostats

If you have a multi-split heat pump, then you will know that thermostats are crucial. The chances are you'll have one for every living area in your home. Thermostats ensure even distribution of heat, which helps to keep your home warm when it is cold outside and cool on extreme summer days. During the winter months, make sure that your temperatures are set at no higher than 72 degrees Fahrenheit to make sure your energy costs stay low. Staying on top of your thermostats is one of the best ways to keep on top of energy usage in order to save money over winter and beyond!

Seal Your Home

The single most important thing you can do is to seal your home. This will save you a lot of money on energy bills because a drafty house has to use more power to heat it and keep it warm than a well-sealed house would. If your manufactured home doesn't already have good seals, it needs thermal curtains, weather strips, and gaskets for all doors, windows, and vents.

Use Fireplaces

If you have a fireplace, use it! Although they might seem like a luxury to most homeowners, fireplaces are an affordable and easy way to warm up your home in winter. Fireplaces heat a significant amount of space and produce no carbon dioxide or methane emissions when used correctly. Experts recommend using small, dry pieces of wood or newspaper as fuel for fire instead of large logs. As an added bonus, burning small sticks will also increase your indoor air quality by filtering smoke particles from outside your home while burning.

Monitor Water Temperature

Find out what water temperature your hot water heater is set to; it's recommended that you change it from 120 degrees Fahrenheit to between 110- and 115-degrees Fahrenheit. This can save up to 4 percent of your energy costs per year, as well as reduce wear on pipes, valves, and appliances. You could also consider a tankless water heater, which uses less energy than traditional water heaters because it doesn't store hot water but instantly produces hot water. While installation can be costly, having no storage tank can save you money in other ways - namely, by reducing or eliminating standby losses. Standby losses occur when you leave your hot water running while waiting for it to get warm.

Add Mobile Home Roof Insulation

Investing in mobile home roof insulation is a good way to keep your home warm and energy-efficient in winter. In fact, investing in products like Ice & Water Shield is an affordable way to dramatically improve your home's energy efficiency while reducing your utility bills. Because you can apply DIY roofing products with simple tools and within a few hours, installing mobile home roof insulation has never been easier!
